Have you tried to massage your scalp and hair with oil? This is an age-old secret known and practiced by women in India for centuries. Oil massages can provide numerous direct and indirect benefits for both your scalp and your hair.
Benefits of a Hair Oil Massage:
Hair oil massage helps boost hair growth
Since the hair is made of protein, it needs nutrients and vitamins to grow well. Using natural hair oil on your hair provide it with nourishment. Massaging oils into the scalp helps the pores open up and absorb the oil. Your hair can become damaged because of hair treatments and chemicals often found in modern hair care products. Natural oils like avocado oil can provide the hair with a boost by improving circulation, strengthening the roots, and promoting hair growth.
Hair oil massages help strengthen hair
Signs that your hair’s roots are weak include flat, limp hair, extreme dryness, split ends, excessive greasiness, and hair breakage. Roots can become weakened due to a number of factors including cold temperatures, heat from over-styling, some hair products, or a poor diet. It is normal for you to lose 100 to 150 strands of hair each day. If you notice more than average hair fall, though, regular oil massages can be of benefit. Massaging your hair and scalp with oils boosts circulation in the scalp which helps improve the transfer of nutrients to the roots. Natural hair oils like Rosemary oil can also help unclog the scalp’s pores which help with both hair growth and root health.
Hair oil helps prevent dandruff
There can be a lot of things that worsen dandruff such as pollution and the weather. Dandruff is the result of having a dry scalp. It can cause itching, hair breakage, hair loss, and damage to the roots. Basically, dandruff is dead skin cells caused by the lack of natural oils. When the sebaceous glands on the skin don’t produce enough oil, the scalp goes undernourished. Having too little or too much natural oils on the scalp can lead to dandruff and other problems. Washing your hair with a natural shampoo helps maintain this balance. Massaging your scalp with hair oils can help reduce dandruff by keeping the scalp from becoming too dry.
Hair oil massage can prevent premature graying
Premature graying has become quite common. It typically occurs because of a diet that lacks enough protein and vitamins. But there are also other factors that can cause hair to turn gray or lighten. Of course, genetics plays a role. Melanin in the skin gives it its color and it does the same for your hair. The more melanin you have, the darker your hair will be. When you lack melanin, your hair starts turning gray. Natural oils help form a protective sheath around strands of hair. This protects them from environmental factors such as UV rays and pollution that can contribute to hair becoming much lighter than normal. Regular oil massages protect your hair and can help it retain its natural color.
